2014 is my year of Pimm’s. Up until now, I’ve never tried Pimm’s. I can’t believe I’ve been missing out all this time.
I still don’t quite understand what Pimm’s is, except that it’s gin based. But one thing’s for sure- it makes the most amazing summer cocktail EVER. Mint julep is to the Kentucky Derby as Pimm’s Cup is to Wimbledon. Gallons and gallons of this stuff is served every summer in London. Traditional Pimm’s Cup is made with Pimm’s No.1 and lemonade. It is garnished with mint, oranges, strawberries and cucumber. To make this cocktail my own, I substituted my favorite cucumber mint lemonade.
Pimm’s is tasty on it’s own, but it tastes even better when mixed with citrus sodas, ginger ale, and lemonade/limeades. I like it A LOT and I think you will too. Cheers!
Not only it this a super simple cocktail to make, it makes you feel fancy while you sip on it.
Have all your ingredients ready. Fill glass with ice.
Add 2 oz Pimm’s No.1
